compromise. it has to include a tax increase on the wealthiest americans. let's not forget it was under bill clinton where he taught 22 million jobs created we had a higher tax rate. i don't think this idea that higher tax rates stopped economic growth. what stopped economic growth is the parties making a difference. we have to come to an agreement and accept the fact that president obama won the election which included the tax increases for the wealthiest americans. >> tell me what you think is fair if we do compromise and taxes are raised he ran on staying howls holds have been make that go money and above will see taxes go up. is that fair? >> no. that is a level that has to move. they are bringing other revenue sources to the table including capping deductions and closing loopholes. that number the president is digging its heels on are where the margin matters and it will effect the job market. the white house will have to give on that point. >> we don't want to see taxes go up for everyone. that tax rate we may see a compromise. with deductions and closing loopholes. >> what do you thin

their membership to act. in 1996, president bill clinton signed the welfare reform act and ended a 60-year-long federal guarantee to help the poorest people in our nation. six years later, many politicians praised the reforms for cutting welfare rolls by half. but critics pointed out that extreme poverty, and poverty among single working women, had risen despite a booming economy. [ chanting ] hundreds of grassroots groups joined forces to advance an anti-poverty agenda behind the banner of a new coalition, the national campaign for jobs and income support. despite a paid staff of only 15, the national campaign had a profound effect on federal policy. ladon james was one of the national field organizers. like many of the low-income leaders she worked with, ladon herself was once on welfare. i became a single parent. and i was attending college, and i was worried about how was i going to make sure that i could get to my doctor's appointments and have some sort of coverage. how am i going to make sure that me and my son have food to eat? it was really, really hard. poussaint: ladon's own exp
at "the washington post" to figure out who might be president. i started that process with bill clinton, turning it into a book, and so there was an assumption when i wrote about barack obama in 2008, an assumption by my friends and colleagues that i would just immediately launch into the boying of barack obama, and i haveñhr to say it was onef the more disk decisions made in my career, and it had nothing to do with barack obama, but what i consider to be the increasingly toxic nature of superficial nature offed -- of modern american politics. i was not sure i wanted to spend three or four years trying to get the true story and throw that into the swath of this culture knowing that there would be people who could try to manipulate any fact and turn it for their political purposes, which, to some extent, is what happened early on until i refused to let it happen more. in any cation, on election night in 2008, i decided i had to do the book, and the story, itself, is what was drawing me into it in a way that transcended any of my concerns about the political culture. this book is really
-- you won't do it again. >> tell the country that? >> tell the country. it's what bill clinton did. >> but he was impeached. >> under a little pressure. >> let's go to the latest developments in this. mrs. kelley, jill kelley, she's married, she was the one involved in being apparently -- she was scaring this other woman who was having the affair with petraeus. she complained to an fbi agent. this is where it became official. complained, jill kelley, complained to an fbi agent -- >> who was a friend of hers. >> who was being harassed. then she does this call. she called 911 one week complaining, that was jill kelley, tried to invoke diplomatic privilege to get the press off her lawn. let's listen to this. this is a little strange. >> i am an honorary consul-general, so i have inviolatability so they should not be to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well? but it's against the law to cross my property. >> this is getting more kato kaling every day. >> that phone call replaced -- >> was she writing, claiming diplomatic immunity from
after knowing that he won was bill clinton. is that right? >> exactly, yes. >> does he feel a debt of gratitude to him? >> well, there's no question about it. as he said to president clinton, he was the most valuable player in this campaign. and we got a chance to spend some time with president clinton over the weekend. he just campaigned his heart out. and he was a -- because he believes that there were two choices here and one led us forward and one led us back. and he was very effective out there. there is a strong sense of gratitude and i think the president is looking forward to calling on president clinton in the future for advice, council and assistance as we move this country forward. >> secondly, the biggest tragedy of the whole evening for many of us was the fact that your mustache gets to stay on. are you a relieved man this morning? >> i will say, when i made the bet, the bet was if we lost pennsylvania, michigan or minnesota i would shave off my mustache. i did it with complete confidence that this mustache, which has been appended to my face for 40 years was going now

questions about it. when you say people have affairs. bill clinton went on and president after the affair. not with an c.i.a. director. the truth is -- >> kimberly: but she sent e-mails, with the allegations threatening e-mails, large number of them and they were from a non- - -- >> juan: i agree but eric says that broadwell's comments shouldn't be -- >> eric: they're not relevant. >> juan: i think they are. kimberly said they were threatening. >> eric: a lot of people -- if the f.b.i. spent their time trying and finding and trying cases of threatening e-mails they would have no time to find terrorists. >> greg: they would be all over dana with what she says. what did you say about my dog? >> kimberly: i'll get you. >> dana: working with greg is the delightful thing. earlier in the first report bret baier said mrs. petraeus is reported to be furious. that might be using -- they might want to look in thesaurus and find a more strong adjective to describe it. i'm sure also they are heart broken. miss broadwell also is married and has two sons. a lot of heartache going here. hard to deal wit
on the top and increasing economic growth. bill clinton increased taxes and we had a much better economy than we had after george w. bush who cut taxes in 2001 and 2003. >> eliot: i'm going to talk about that event study in a few moments on the show. lastly there is another crisis emerging, which is the debt cereal something going to bump up us or we'll bump up against it in a short month or two. that has to be with this bargaining--they have to deal with it simultaneously i hope. >> boehner will say to the president, look, if you keep everything the way it is right now and extend the bush tax cuts temporarily into january or february then we will agree not to oppose an increase in the debt limit and then we'll have our negotiations sometime in february or in march. i think the president needs to say no. the american public already went through that with you guys. one of the reasons you got a rubbing in the last election is because of your manipulations your subjecting to the american economy to the possibility of defaulting on the faith and credit of the united states. americans don't want t
secrets so we can afford the story. then, i thought some of you ought to tell that to bill clinton. right sne had access to top secrets and fooling around with someone who wasn'tn't his wife. is f.there is good news, is that now that sex is involved may be the so called main stream media will show interest in benghazi. >> so you believe that the media has covered this fairly so far? what? these days ago? it's been all over the place. >> you can't ignore it. it's a story. and i'm not concerned and not interested in it. except as, if it pertains to policy such as benghazi. i'm thinking as i say, now that petraeus is... >> your theory is that we live in the united states of entertainment now, they have to cover. >> what about peters at the top of the program? being outrage bid time line? saying do you know what? this is another example. after the election, and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true, i guess it does. they've managed to bury the benghazi story. i mean, the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel obligation to brin
. in bill clinton's own words, a couple days before the election he was in an obama rail lee. he stood there and said, you know when i was younger and i was caught with my hand in the cookie jar, i just take my hand out of the cookie jar. we were being lectured about being honest. in his own words, he was caught with his hand in the cookie jar. he said i made a mistake and i resign. however the fbi got involved and there is a lot of curiosity about why the fbi is investigating the cia director. it is a counterintelligence investigation. it started out as a harassment investigation of a government employee who said -- joe kelly said i am getting these e-mails. it is a forensic investigation. i know i am losing all of you. but i am not losing them. the viewers are paying attention. >> at 3:00 a.m. this is exactly what they needed. they do this investigation and they quickly identify petraeus. it is a forensic investigation of e-mails. there is petraeus. it is a major national security issue because you have somebody with unauthorized close access to the director of the cia. now it is a c
's incredible how the administration fail up. susan rice is appointing bill clinton as a marriage counselor. she has done nothing. we're in the passenger seat of car driven by 16-year-old that got his driver's lie sense and is texting. that's what i feel like. it call them the keystone cop ks but that would be insulting to them. the media is following the juicy pieces of gossip. we are forgetting about the important issue, benghazi. say it again to piss you off, bob. we spent so much time on the valerie plaem affair. they made in a movie and put it on cover of "vanity fair" and it was a stupid scandal. four people are dead in benghazi and we are talking about pages of e-mails. >> bob: let me ask you a question. because you don't like what she did on benghazi going around to the sunday talk show, name me one thing you know about her that disqualifies her for secretary of state? >> greg: that is enough for me. >> dana: she has had a less than shining career as u.n. ambassador. >> bob: how so. >> dana: she has big shoes to fill. but presidents get to choose who they want and if she is confirmed by
to what they were when bill clinton left office, we are going over the fiscal cliff? >> i do not see a realistic way to solve this without a recognition -- let's see the positive side. it is encouraging to see the leadership recognize that we are going to have to generate a modest amount of additional revenues from high income -- that is a good recognition. we are just at the beginning. we will get people -- we will see how it goes. i agree, this is going to be tough. i know the lack of clarity and resolution is going to be a burden and a source of uncertainty. this is something we will have to go through. we will govern this country better, find a better way to support things that improve the long-term growth prospects, we have to find a way to resolve the divide on this question about the long-term. -- long-term fiscal trajectory of the country. that is worth trying to do. >> as you said and the president said, we have to both raise taxes and restrain spending. the proposal so far on medicare has been largely limited to the provider side. is the president going to leave here with a
it was under bill clinton. that's what the president's saying he won't budge on. another way though is to close loopholes or cap deductions. the think tank third way said you could get about $1.3 million capping deductions. that affects the wealthy. there's many ways to get revenue, why is he only saying i'm going to go for this way? >> let's remember that he was very conciliatory in his speech on election night. and he even reiterated today, erin, that if republicans have other ideas on how to get to where we need to go, if other democrats have other ideas, which would mean to deal with this in a balanced way that does not hurt middle class families, workers, seniors, the most vulnerable, i think he's willing to listen to that. so i think that is where the compromise can lie, if republicans really understand they're the ones that are going to need to give more. >> do you agree with that? the president did win electoral popular vote. the margin was only 2%, but he did win it. >> sure. well, elections have consequences, right? and this is the consequence of the election. he's the president of th
that if we are going to sacrifice, bill clinton and people like myself should be paying more taxes, and that does not mean that we won't make investments, and warren buffett has it right. >> and by the way, the stinking rich are paying 1% or 2% more, they will still be stinking rich. thank you, lenny davis. >> thank you, piers. >>> and next, jay tapper covering the front lines and what h did he think of the contentious news conference today? that is coming up. did he think contentious news conference today? that is coming up. did he think contentious news conference today? that is coming up. did he think contentious ne conference today? that is coming up. did he think contentious news conference today? that is coming up. if you are one of the millions of men who have used androgel 1%, there's big news. presenting androgel 1.62%. both are used to treat men with low testosterone. androgel 1.62% is from the makers of the number one prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. it raises your testosterone levels, and... is concentrated, so you could use less gel. and with androgel 1.62%
short. two winning campaign, bill clinton, 62%. and then '92, 53%. unmarried white women, i had a pollster tell me this was the most fluid part of the electorate. unmarried white women, it isn't just single women under the age of 40. don't just think there, you're also talking widows. so there's a good chuck of these folks. the president won them by six points. and they were 14% of the electorate. yes, he won them by more, 19, but they were 13% of the electorate. but this is perhaps the most important swing voting group that you had to look at. i can tell you in senate race after senate race, the number that would fluctuate more than independents was unmarried white women. is it a voting group we should continue to follow, continue to track. i encourage more pollsters. not all pollsters do single and married enough in their factuals to get the you cross-tabs. this marriage gap is an important track to be tracking but in particular, married and gender thrown in to one. autopsy 2012, we will continue to do it throughout the rest of the year. >>> investors corner, new data shows th
relied on liberals like bill clinton and timothy gite neither and now senator elizabeth warren who actually called the gop obstructionist in one story. >> you know what is interesting having uncovered more than my share of threatened government shutdowns and debt ceiling and qawg mires and the like. republicans are castrated for being bough lig rent -- belligerent when it comes to sticking to their principals and stop the spending spree. not so democrats if they don't. so i am just saying what is good for the goose could mean going after the began deer. gander, so why not? >> are you right president you are absolutely -- you are right. you are absolutely right. and it is just -- this is the liberal media mind set. the networks -- i think it stems from the liberal idea that they bt what -- they want taxes raised. they badger republicans who say it is not good for the economy, and they don't consider it a valid principal that it is good to stick to your guns in that case. but president obama isn't criticized for saying he will veto any bill that includes -- that doesn't include tax h
's suggestion he might not demand the top income tax rate return to what it was under bill clinton. aides with him for the second tour of damage from hurricane sandy suggested mr. obama's demand is for a sure source of re-knew, leaving negotiators to decide how much the re-knew is. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of, kind of raise revenue through dynamic scoring. or closing loopholes that have not been identified. >> on this day, house speaker john boehner claimed that gallup survey showed most people support lowering the deficit ending the tax loopholes and making needed spending cuts. but that is not specific enough for white house. boehner wasn't more detailed the day before. >> getting in to the specifics of that at this point would not be con deuce i to try to come to the white house. >> republicans and democrats continue to position themselves for friday startup talks between the president and congressional leaders. each accusing the other of refusing to compromise. >> the keys to the car are heading toward the fisca cliff are
control of washington, they were done in washington. just like democrats were done and so likely when bill clinton in 1994, well, they weren't. he wasn't. something happened along the way, each way, each day, they say it's humbling to lose, but i think it it should be even more humbling to win, to see in the moment that it is only a moment. that in a moment it could change. many times. my dad was a very wise man armed with only a high school education. he had a doctorate in something i like to call life. he got it. and he urged me and my brother and sisters to get this. never become so arrogant that you risk showing others you're an ass and never greater than when things are going your way, because contrary to what you think, people won't remember how you handled things when the chips were down, but how you handled them when the chips were up. democrats now, like republicans two years ago, would be wise to remember that. and fame is fleeting, success even more so. just remember, americans elected you to get a job done and if you can't do it in the next election, well, find someone who can.
to do? he has four years left. we saw with ronald reagan and bill clinton. with a second term and a better economy, you can achieve a lot and become quite popular in the process? does obama have that in him? what do you want him to do now that he has four more years? >> the big thing he has going for him, he has four years he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. they start these elections about two years ahead of time usually. and that's where their focus goes on how do i keep doing this job, whether i'm a senator, congressman, or whatever it is, if you are a career politician, you always look out for yourself first. when the president's in this position, having been elected a second time, now he has nothing to lose. >> where do you you this he's been weak and where does he need to be stronger? >> i think he's been weak. my son was a huge obama supporter until obama ordered that american's death with the drone and then he lost my son. my son was so offended that a president could kill a united states citizen without a trial, without anything like that. and my belief
bill clinton famously had his office affair with a young intern who really was a child. i mean, his risk was crazy risk. i guess david petraeus was also as the director of the central intelligence agency for goodness, sakegoodnessgoodnesssg that you risk even the presidency of the united states of america, historic important significant post. you risk even that for a piece on the side? >> if you're not really thinking it through, yes. >> but is it true that some men, i mean, i speak now knowing, and you know, that i'm a decade clean and sober now, but you know, i'm trying my best to forget what happened before. to throw everything away potentially just for a little nookie. >> it depends. if it's thrown at you and you get the urge and you don't think about it and you go for it, yes, but there are consequences. >> who is it that said power is an aphrodisiac. it's a turn on. >> he's been controlling himself for 38 years. >> i believe that,t too. i absolutely believe that. when he tells his trusted people like colonel mansoor and colonel boylan that this is the first time, i feel almost

were working with bill clinton he moved the democrats towards the center in a key way through the dlc, became a new democrat as they called him. >> well, speaking of gifts, if mitt romney wanted to give a gift to the republican party, he'd spend the next four years in the mormon missionary in nepal. man's just got to shut up. but that's his business. look, we lost five out of six elections and then governor clinton decided for a change. mike tyson said everybody got a plan. they got hit in the mouth. their plan is end immigration, anti-gay stuff that's all going out the window if they've got any sense. we're going to see if somebody can bring them along that and they have to win the iowa caucuses or do well in them and take that message to south carolina. remember, their base is still sort of agitated out there. somebody's going to have to deal with that. the truth of the matter is they got hit in the mouth and going to have a new plan. >> what about that, ari? do you think it's time for a new republican, new republican orientation? >> no. but i do think there are some changes that ha
debate, how striking was it that when mitt romney presto, from his response was, well, under bill clinton there was great economic prosperity are the holy observer, is all about bill clinton and how nifty the economy was under him. i've got to tell you, i would've given a link to see that romney turned to him and say, mr. president, i knew bill clinton. [laughter] our ideas work, their ideas don't. the last four years our economy has grown 1.5% a year. that is less than half the historical average. for 70 years has averaged 3.3% growth a year. and this president is fond of saying he inherited the worst economy in the history of the universe. and everything, by the way, is george w. bush's fault. he doesn't have much historical memory when he makes that argument. any of you all remember 1978, 1979? double-digit unemployment, 22% interest rates gas lines, stagflation in 1888 different president. ronald reagan inherited a struggling economy. and reagan implemented policies 180 degrees opposite those of obama. incentive jacking up taxes, he slashed taxes. instead of exploding spending on the
and working hard for -- and playing by the rules as bill clinton liked to say, if you can't speak to both of those, you're not going to be able to be a winner or have a governing majority that is stable in this country. it's not possible. >> howard, the great swing voters, reagan democrats, more conservative, many catholics, but just middle of the road people, i'm not sure they're all capitalists and tie coopycoonst. they're general pie peoplely people that go to work and come off the shift. >> there's two levels. one is that not everybody cares about entrepreneurialism and the abstract theories of joseph, et cetera. and the other part of it is cultural. people want to be left alone to live their lives in relative security with values that they appreciate. and mitt romney, who thought the whole campaign was just about the unemployment rate even failed at that because he didn't connect up the entrepreneurial spirit with how it might help the lives of those work a day people. that's something ron 23458d nald reagan and jack kemp at least figured out how to sell a generation ago. >> i guess
that to bill clinton, right? because he also had aches is to top secrets and was fooling around with someone who wasn't his wife. if there is good news that comes out of this petraeus matter is that now that sex is involved. mainstream media will show a little interest in benghazi. >> so you believe that the media has covered this fairly so far, the petraeus thing? three days ago it broke? two days ago? all over the place. can't ignore it, obviously. >> no, you can't ignore it it's a story. and, you know, i'm not concerned -- i'm not interested in it except if it pertains at all to policy such as benghazi. i'm thinking, as i say, now that petraeus -- involved with sex. >> bill: your theory is we live in the united states of entertainment and now that sex has been injected they have to cover it? >> exactly. >> bill: what about peters at the top of the program being outraged by the time line saying you know what? here is another example of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't
, bill clinton won big. you know who else won big? me. when i went back in january of 1997, was i willing to work any more after bill clinton won the election than before? no. a lot of republicans that won an election in the house as well. i just say that to say the president can go ahead -- and to follow up on david, he could do brinkmanship if he wants. a lot of these guys have spent the last couple years in the house standing up to the president going after him aggressively. he got re-elected. >> and the government's organized the same way. >> yes. if the president wants to engage in brinksmanship, he can. >> the message they took from their own re-election in their district was go back to washington and fight the president. don't cooperate with what he wants to do. >> right. >> all right, josh -- >> that's what i'm saying, brinksmanship seems to be short-sighted right now. i think instead of flying all across the country and spending taxpayer dollars on air force one and your security detail, could you just try inviting people over to the white house? >> he's doing that, too. >> and w

're finished. it's almost ma could cabremacab. >> we have talked about bill clinton as a super surrogate for barack obama. mike, the guy in that ad, he's a super anti-surrogate, an anti-validater of mitt romney. he looks like the voter that barack obama needed to change sides, that former reagan democrat, that white working class guy looking dead into the camera and saying this guy destroyed us. he took away our livelihood and he made us build the stage that we had to stand on to announce the end of our jobs. it was absolutely the most devastating ad, but what was also remarkable as the romney people had no response. look, they had a six-month lead time on this line of attack because, remember, something called winning our future pac? they ran a 27 minute ad of this same message. romney because he survived in florida after that, he seemed to think i can get over this because he didn't respond. >> i talked to -- >> jane mayer, you write in your piece that sarah palin of all people thought that the bain ad had a negative impact on mitt romney's candidacy. she thinks it worked. here she is
on the table. have real entitlement reform. on taxes it's as bill clinton said. it's simple math. spending is at 24% of gdp. taxes are at about 15% of gdp right now. even the most conservative member of congress only proposes to bring spending down to say 20% or even 19% of gdp. you still have a 4% to 5% gap. that represents hundreds of billions of dollars that has to be made up. even if you assume growth could get back to 3%, that won't make up the gap. so taxes have to be on the table. there's no way to get around that if you want to actually deal with the fiscal crisis that we have. and what is most heartening to me is to learn today that the president is willing to take this show on the road, to go out into the states and make the case and actually reinforce that mandate he has and make republicans realize that those that want to work with him will be rewarded as people who are trying to solve people, those that want to obstruct will pay a political praice that they will feel at election time. >> his opening act has got to be rick ross. these haters are not going to hold me back. some

second term victory. as did bill clinton with the republican controlled house and republican controlled senate after a more resounding second term victory then president obama. both examples, both of them, illustrate the rare opportunity that divided government presents. president obama can follow suit or he can take the extremist view that both reagan and clinton rejected by founding his nose at the other side and insisting that if republicans are not willing to do things his way he will not do anything at all. if the president is serious, he will follow the lead of president reagan and clinton. if he is really serious, he will put the campaign rhetoric aside, propose a realistic resolution that can pass a republican controlled house and a divided senate, and work to get it done. if the president acts in this spirit, i have no doubt he will have the support of his own party and a willing partner in hours. the american people will criticize of relief knowing not only that we have avoided a crisis, but that washington can feel their interests. unless we act, americans will face a combina

term and bill clinton's was marred by his own personal issues. second trerms difficult. w. had a dficult time. one of the things i think they underestimate at the white house and the treasury is the idea of doing tax reform. when you both were probably in preschool, i was covering the '85, '86, tax reform act, and to call it heavy lifting is an understatement. it took a savvy, smart treasury secretary, jim baker, working with capitol hill and a supportive president, and democrats and republicans. i don't see any of those ingredients today to do tax reform in 2013, 2014. >> especially ifhe esident going to have a new treasury secretary. itim geithner, this has sort of been his-- tim geithner wanted to be behind tax reform, wanted to be the force behind corporate tax reform. that might speak to tim geithner staying on a little long fer they think they can get something done in the first six months. >> why is anything different now? why is anything different in the second term? >> good point. >> i'll turn the hosting to you. >> martha, i think they probably have leverage in the sh
